We sell premium quality trees from Dave Wilson Nursery! If this is your first time ordering a bare root tree, you should know that they come 'dormant': they will look like sticks with roots. Give them the right care and they will thrive. Fruit and nut trees are 5/8" diameter and 4'-5' tall unless otherwise noted. All are grown on semi-dwarf rootstock unless otherwise noted. This is preferred because a mature height of 1/2 to 3/4 of standard tree size makes harvesting much easier. Before shipping, trees are topped and roots are enclosed in a plastic bag with a small amount of wet pine shavings to keep the roots moist during shipment.
Know what to expect of Potted Fruit Trees
Fig, Pomegranates, Citrus & Olives are pencil-caliper and will be shipped in tall tree pots (4" x 4" x 9.25") and will measure between 18" to 36" tall. Citrus and olive trees are evergreen and figs and pomegranates do not fare well in "bare root" conditions, thus they are sold in pots.
Why Buy Our Bare Root Fruit Trees?
Most fruit trees are only $19.99
Most of our trees are 2-years-old, meaning you'll get fruit sooner
Most of the trees are semi-dwarf for an easy harvest
For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating)? Enjoy!
Pre-order to assure you’ll get the varieties you want!
Your order will ship out of our warehouse as soon as we receive your trees. (Dec-Jan). We cannot hold bare root items in CA, as they will begin to bud or flower. Once they break dormancy, they can no longer be shipped. We do not have the refrigerator capacity to hold all orders, which is why all trees will ship out as soon as we receive them. If you won’t be ready to plant when the trees arrive, watch our "Heeling in Bare Root Trees" video and learn how to keep your trees healthy until you are ready to plant.
